Now, two years removed from her nearly 20-year stint as a Buffalo News sportswriter, Amy Moritz still values the “power” of stories. That theme stood out in a lengthy interview with WBFO discussing the changes in journalism. Her current story reflects the power of the moment: As her husband nurses patients on a COVID-19 unit at a local hospital, she’s “taking care of the eighty-year-olds on my end.”

A veteran of five marathons and several triathlons, Buffalo News sportswriter Amy Moritz  is now training for her first ultramarathon. In order to reach this level of athletic achievement, she first had to stop doubting herself. Moritz recounts her journey in her first book, "I Thought You'd Be Faster: The Quest to Be An Athlete."
